Now this is a Black Swan spoof that Natalie Portman would be proud of. Sassy Gay Friend, the series of videos from Chicago’s Second City Network of comedians, is back with a fresh look at the film for which Portman just won an Oscar. And Brian Gallivan, who plays the Sassy Gay Friend, gives Portman’s character Nina a much-needed schooling on the idea of perfection.
(Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen the movie, you’re going to need to do that before you watch this video.)
Lessons learned: Being a crazed perfectionist doesn’t make you perfect, it just makes you crazy. Also, awareness of your surroundings is paramount, especially when your mom watches literally everything you do, nail clippers are cheap and totally necessary, and you can have an effective surprise twist at the end of a two-minute YouTube video.
